NOTES | This is a 9oz jar made with all-natural soy wax. Soy wax is eco-friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in cases of accidental spills or if you should wish to keep the jar! Each candle comes with a resealable lid.
Please note that some frosting may occur. This is perfectly normal for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax.
Each candle is also made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color or scent.

I like this scent a lot. I was afraid the vanilla might be too strong, but it’s not. the stronger scents are sugar and flowers.
The combination is brilliant. It’s not overly sweet, but bright and playful.

I’ve tried all the Lunar Chronicles candles, and while this is my least favorite, it is still a beautiful color. I don’t love vanilla as much as most people.

Repeat purchase. I love Cress! It’s elegant, lucious, and I love burning this in the evenings because it’s the perfect candke for relaxation.

Repeat purchase. I first tried the 2 ounce in a 4-pack gift set, and I loved this candle’s scent I came back and purchased Cress in a larger candle. Love it!

This is my favorite candle of all time! Maybe it’s the soft vanilla that just wraps around you like a warm hug..? Or maybe it’s the perfection of vanilla, sugar and just the right flowers. I dont know! I do know that this scent can’t be replicated or compared to any other out there. (I may have tried while the shop was closed for a bit) Either way, it’s calming and soothing without making me wanna take a nap. It’s my mommy time. I light this candle, read a book and all my worries fade in the background. Perfection!
